Coral is an organic stone of biological origin such as pearls and seashells, and not a stone or mineral of geological origin such as diamonds and sapphires. Coral is classified as a marine animal and has an unusual and complex life cycle, as it forms and arises in large colonies in most cases, as these colonies branch out similarly to tree branches on vast areas under the sea surface. Coral is rarely found in isolation in the sea, where, as mentioned, it grows in colonies consisting of a large number of corals.
